Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Early thoughts on the "new" Garcia Live Volume 1 ?

I get the feeling that it's a bit over produced. I don't know how to put it. The crowd noises sound a bit "canned". It sounds kinda corny. Does anyone recall what sounds like young ladies swooning on some of the older recordings of Bobby doing his "cowboy" stuff ? That's what the crowd noises sound like to me.
My other beef is Ozzie Ahlers is a bit shrill and hits the keys a bit too hard. It's overpowering on some of the tunes. Almost difficult to listen to at times.
I hate to whine. I really do worship just about any sound that emanates from Jerry.
I guess that's what happens when they hype you up for a CD with all the preorders and moving the release dates, etc. Oh well. Still glad I bought it. His voice is angelic. It's church for me.
